USS Utah memorial at Pearl Harbor. Many people do not realize that the Utah is the other ship memorial in addition to the Arizona. The Utah was a washed up battleship being used as a target platform for aircraft bombing practice, using dummy bombs, but it was sunk nonetheless with loss of life. It was unsalvageable and towed to the beach and abandoned. Because all the remains could not be removed it was made a grave. The 12 inch guns were mounted on shore to repel a possible invasion.
